Dalit and Tribal Studies and Action is an intensive and theoretically engaging field with the academic programme premised within a Dalit and Tribal episteme. It is located within anti-oppressive social work and articulates a bottom up, perspective from within and perspective from below under the framework of Dalit and Tribal Studies and Action. The programme follows a meta-discipline approach to knowledge acquisition and brings within its theoretical ambit subjects such as Ontology, Epistemology, Ethics and Aesthetics, Social and Political Philosophy, and Dalit and Tribal Knowledge Systems. Students are exposed to the latest theoretical debates from a meta-discipline approach pertaining to Tribes, Caste, the Indian State and global geopolitics.

The programme uses critical and contextual pedagogy led by faculty who are renowned for their ability to facilitate the process. Academically oriented students interested in the ideas of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and dedicated to the empowerment of Dalits and Tribes would greatly benefit from the programme. Those who have a degree in History, Human Geography, Anthropology, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Peace and Conflict Studies, Political Science and any Humanities subject would find the programme both challenging and fulfilling. Students of Bachelor’s in Social Work with interest in Ambedkar Social Work would be greatly enriched by the theoretical insights and depth that the programme offers. Activists with any academic background having few years of experience with people’s movements would find the programme extremely insightful and engaging. The programme is the first of its kind in the world, providing students with wide theoretical exposure to international politico-historical and political economic discourses situated within the framework of Ambedkar Social Work. Graduates of this programme have job opportunities in a range of governmental and non-governmental organisations, civil society movements, and social enterprises.
